I SHOWED MY FACE (Free Verse)

A Chapter by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)
"

just because...

"




I saw a world of faceless people

      where heart is not a part of the body

      and mind is the dominating piece

      while mouth is a subordinating component.

     

I saw them, I heard them

      so I showed myself unto them

      and I sang my song

      and painted their stories.

 

But I made a mistake

      when I showed myself unto them-

      they chased me

      and laughed out of my court.

 

And I made another mistake

       when I sang my song-

       they shouted at me to stop

       so I forgot my lines.

 

Then I made one more mistake

        when I painted their stories-

        they grabbed my canvass

        and  threw it piece by piece....

 

Like my heart

       broken into pieces

       they tried to crush it

       just because...

 

       I showed my face.

Featured Review

we make ourselves vulnerable when we express our inner feelings...and often our heart gets crushed---

those faceless, heartless people who never show themselves.

reminds me of high school dances when the guys would laugh at me because i got out on the floor and danced...always the first one...they laughed but it was because they couldn't dance themselves...so it made them feel better about themselves to make fun of me...it's like that with people.

but i have always believed in showing the real me regardless of consequence.

really like this poem...last line in fifth stanza might be "and threw it piece by piece"---

Thanks, Jacob.
We take a chance when we reveal our true selves to people, very often this is why people hide behind a facade, it tends to be safer there, although a lonely place to dwell. Great read Dhaye!

when I read this, I see a different perspective, as if you are a reporter, writing an article, in doing so, there will always be someone who will not like it...

on the other side, the world is indeed full of faceless people, i saw it too many times that i am used to it, that i myself do the same sometimes, well aren't we all have a facade that covers us... its a harsh world out there, we know that to well, aren't we... but despite everything else, we risk something for what we love - and that show's we show who we are...

very nice, i like it!

Sometimes people see your face while not seeing theirs...

Thanks for peeking in.
You are so right. You can show your truth to the world but if the world does not like truth they will mock us , make fun of us , treat us with disdain. If we show vulnerability it is like inviting wolves who are heartless...Bravo

Thanks, Sheema. I really appreciate your visit.
Sad and filled with emotion. Your words hold so much pain. People can be cruel, but not everyone. Don't stop showing your face.
